Gifts from strangers are never good. Especially when they’re big bundles of drugs.
June Nash is back. In Key West on vacation. And not at all hiding out from her famous brother’s crazy fans, The Dewzers. It’s been a tough couple of months and she just wants a little peace and quiet. But life doesn’t work that way in June’s world. Drug runners have mistaken her for their contact and she ends up with a sailboat full of Square Groupers. Which the Coast Guard immediately takes off her hands. So she’s in the clear, right? Not even a little. Now she’s dodging bullets from rival drug runners as she tries to escape her mom’s attempt to bond and Morgan’s obsessive need to figure out why someone from their past has followed her to Key West. How do you go from sipping rum one minute to running for your life the next? With June, it’s just another Tuesday.
More live writing prompts this week! I’m joined by Lisa Mahoney, my co-author in the Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journal Series, and authors Jeannie Wycherley, Misha Safran, and Joan Mularz. They write, we chat, then they read. All in 30 minutes.
This time we worked from the Mystery Edition and I’ve included the prompt we used so that you can play too! Our authors had about 20 minutes to write this time. After you’ve listened to the show, grab a six sided dice, roll for your elements, set your timer for 20 minutes and then share some or all of what you wrote.
Roll your dice for your main character. Even= Your MC is alone Odd= Roll again for a companion.

Retail Store Clerk
Mall Ear-Piercing Kiosk Girl

That’s it. Write down what you roll, set your timer, and get to writing! If you share in the comments I’ll read them in a future show. No time limit if you’re listening way off in the future.
